Grassroot sides face fixture pile up

The cold weather, which is still wreaking havoc on sporting events, has left amateur and junior football sides all over the country facing a huge fixture pile up with many clubs failing to play a game since early December.

Should the cold snap continue this weekend, league officials will have to brace themselves for an unpre­ced­ented battle to get games played by the end of the scheduled season, meaning many sides will have to play 2-3 games each week.

Leagues all over the country have been affected.­  The Huddersfield RCD Junior League is facing it's worse fixture pile-up in the history of the league.

Committee member Eric Kershaw said that the league were already far beyond the usual problems faced season on season.
